That has got to be the most irrelevant comparison possible. Whether or not it is illegal to disclose someone else's personal medical information to a 3rd party without ghat person's consent has zero to do with WHEN and to WHOM that person disclose that information themselves. That's the best you could come up with? You need a new thinking cap.<quoted text>
Why donít you put on your thinking cap and ask yourself how itís different? Ask yourself,ďTonka, how is oneís medical information possibly different than oneís parent status?Ē
When doing so, please ask yourself why arenít there any federal laws that protection disclosure of oneís parental status, despite there being laws that protect against disclosure of medical history?
Ask yourself why someone might be adverse to striking up a conversation about their medical history with someone they just met, while not being adverse to striking up a conversation about their children?
Is there a difference between discussing your irritable bowl syndrome with someone you just met verses the fact that you a parent? Or are these two things analogous?
In both cases the person knows they need to divulge that info at some point. All we're discussing is the timing.
